There're many factors to consider when assessing user ratings. For one, PSMK2 is way too "gamer oriented" to provide a good sampling for ADV/VN scores. With Memories Off scores, the samplings seem to range from ~3 to 30.

Another thing to consider is that the opinions of dedicated ADV or Memories Off fans may not reflect those of the typical consumer. A series diehard might be content with countless sequels and spinoffs, regardless of quality or level of originality (niche developers thrive on that kind of userbase). They'll happily buy many things up (due to the appearances of favorite characters, further development of a loved story, the same style of presentation or writing, etc.), even if the work isn't on par with the original. However, the casual fan might not be so forgiving.
